Nice, quiet place, beautiful

I wanted to catch the late sun and walk off dinner, so we took a ride there. Very glad we did. Few people, clean beach, just lovely.

After brunch a visiting friend was determined to get to the beach. Since we ate on Sullivan's Island we decided to just lay out on this beach. Normally we go to Folly and have never been to Sullivan's but I will say it was quiet and we had a great time here. Also, parking was not an issue.

Enjoy late morning walks with happy wagging souls and people of all ages exploring and excersizing. Clouds clear to sunny skies around 11:00 am.

It's was cold and windy but so beautiful. The kite surfers were amazing to watch! Lovely, non-commercialized and low key.

We went to Sullivan's Island Beach while vacationing in Charleston, SC. The beach was beautiful and free! The beaches here were more crowded than the beaches at Isle of Palms. However, they were not so crowded that it disturbed us.

Too chilly to get in the water, but it was great walking along the beach and people watching! Saw a jellyfish on the shore, which was something none of us had ever seen! Neat little town!

Visited here recently and walked our dog on the beach. Very peaceful and scenic place.. dogs can be off leash at certain times of the day.

I love visiting Sullivan's Island. It's low key, pristine, with beautiful wide beaches and scenic views. While you're there visit Poe's Tavern for a burger and a Bloody Mary!

A beautiful beach. Excellent for walking, just look out for all of the washed up jelly fish! If you are lucky, you might find a dead seahorse or sand dollar! At the end of the beach, you can view Charleston and watch the huge container boats! Can be windy, so be prepared. And wear sunblock for sure!

Visiting from the DC area, I wanted a quiet beach -- something without lots of t-shirts and french fries on a boardwalk. Sullivan Island provided the escape I needed. There are no hotels on the island and some rental properties. The island includes Ft Sumter, a lighthouse and an amazing view of the bridge going into downtown Charleston.
